A large audience filled the Methodist
church last evening to listen to a Christ
mas sermon by the pastor, Rev. J. II.
Wood. The ppeaker took his text from
the verse in which the announcement of
Christ's birth is made and .'preached
from it an able sermon, most appropri
ate to this season of the year. Mr.
Wood epoke of Christ in four different
roles First, as a statesman, in which
capacity Christ taught lessons of politi
cal prudence to the people of Palestine,
and showed his wonderful insight into
the civic institutions of the age; Christ
as a reformer was tbe next subdivision ;
then as the greatest philanthropist of all
ages ; and finally as the saviour of man
kind. The speaker spoke of Christmas
and tbe habit of gift-making at this
time. Presents, he said, were too often
given with the hope of receiving . some
thing in return. The rich receive what
they do not need, while the poor go un
remembered. . Remember the poor at
Christmas time was Mr. Wood's closing
AT THE CONGREGATIONAL.
Rev. W. C. Curtis was listened to by
large audiences yesterday morning and
evening. At the evening service the
theme was founded upon the story by
Edward Everett Hale entitled "In His
Name." Mr. Curtis proceeded to give a
resume of the story which told of the
"Poor men of -Lyons" and the deeds
which were done for the love of Christ.
The central idea gathered from the story
and which the speaker enlarged upon
and elucidated was the dependence of
one person on another and the utter
helplessness of a selfish life. The ser
mon was a most spiritual one, and lis
tened to with deep attention by the
hearers. The singing by the 'choir both
morning and evening was of a high

Dr. Deitrich, who ariived in town at
noon from Dufur, brings word of a
cutting affray which occurred at Wamic
yesterday afternoon. A courier arrived
at Dr. Deitrich's residence last night
asking him to go to Wamic to attend
Tom Edmonsen, who bad been seriously
and perhaps fatally stabbed by Ed
Stoey. For some time there has been
bad blood between ' the Stoey and Ed
mnnsen families, the cause being a very
trivial one it being alleged that one of
the Edmunsen family 'stole a spool of
thread from the Stoeys. Yesterday
afternoon Ed Stoey came to Edmunsen's
house, about three miles from Wamic,
and after some conversation the stab
bing occurred. Dr. Deitrich was unable
to go to Wamic, and Dr. Kane of Dufur
was summoned. The exact extent of
Edmunsen's injuries are not known, but
it is believed they are very serious. At
last accounts Stoey had not been ar
rested. Wamic is situated at the south
ern end of this county.
